The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has initiated a team, Citizen Action Response (CAR) to forestall the illegal act of alleged looting of Imo State properties by the government of outgoing Governor Rochas Okorocha and his family members.
Recall that KanyiDaily published videos allegedly shot at Heroes Square in Owerri, the state capital, where trucks were seen loading irons rods supposedly meant for construction work in the state and dismantled electric poles.
According to a citizen of the state who was narrating what was happening in the video, a relative of the governor, Jude Okorocha, was spotted with the trucks but ran away the moment some citizens of the state arrived the scene to stop the looting.
In reaction through a statement issued yesterday by the PDP state Secretary, Ray Emeana, the party said the committee will among other things, monitor further state government activities including financial transactions, sale of lands and re-registration of vehicles. The statement further reads:
“In view of the massive and shameful looting of property belonging to Imo State by the out going Okorocha government, a Citizens Action Response (CAR) has been initiated. To this end, a voluntary citizens action group has been formed to protect all properties belonging to the state.
“Please call the following numbers, 08159019039, 09011021025 and 08147705809 if you notice any suspicious movement of government property anywhere in the state. These include financial transactions, sales of lands or assets, change of vehicle registrations or outright dismantling and carting away or destruction of public property.”
